The Best Entry Level Flash Unit For A Sony Camera – Godox TT350S Review!

As you can tell from the title, we are massive fans of the Godox TT350S and really do think that it deserves the title of the best entry-level camera flash currently on the market if you own a Sony camera body. So much so that we actually ended up deciding on publishing this dedicated article going over why we feel it is such a great little camera flash.

We have lost count of the number of new photographers who use a Sony camera as their current camera of choice and end up picking up some poor quality entry-level flash unit simply due to there being so many poor products on the market. Thankfully, this no longer has to be the case as you can quickly, easily, and cheaply improve your flash photography performance by picking up the Godox TT350S.

Considering its price point in the market, the TT350S really does have both an excellent build quality as well as an excellent design. This makes the flash unit very easy to use and get the most out of while also making it robust enough to take a few knocks without breaking.

Godox has also taken a bunch of feedback onboard from their previous generations of flash unit and totally overhauled their navigation menu. This has made is simple, smooth, and very easy to navigate even if you are not used to using a Godox flash unit.

The popularity of the Godox TT350S within the Sony camera owning community is steadily growing and its reputation is excellent. Many other photographers who own the Godox TT350S have chosen to post their own independent reviews of the flash unit too due to loving it so much.

The TT350S has a number of commonly used modes included as standard including manual mode, multi-flash mode, auto flash mode, and remote mode. Its wireless functionality including full 2.4G compatibility. This ensures that you can remotely trigger the flash unit with a number of different accessories while also using it as part of a multi-flash set up if required.

At the time of writing, the TT350S is fully compatible with the A7, A7R, A7S, A7 II, A7R II, A7S II, A6300, and A6000. That said, a number of firmware updates have been released for the camera over the years so we wouldn’t be surprised if additional ones were released in the future to add any new Sony cameras to the list as time goes on.

We always see people expecting the TT350S to have poor battery life due to it being such a budget-friendly camera but in all fairness to the flash, it definatley holds its own when it comes to battery life. Depending on the batteries you choose to put in it as well as your camera settings you can expect from two hundred to two hundred and fifty flash activations per charge.

Another thing that we would like to point out is that lowering your flashes recycle time down to the 0.1 seconds recycle will rapidly eat through your battery as more power is required to charge the flash quicker. On top of this, the lower the recycle time, the quicker your camera flash will heat up and potentially overheat.

Thankfully, the TT350S does have excellent heat dissipation technology that does a good job of trying to make sure that it won’t overheat quickly but just keep in mind that it is still a risk.
